The Friends of Manning's Pit
The Friends of Manning's Pit Community Group have led campaigns to save the fields since 2015 - they are now owned by local Charity the Pilton Green Man CIO (Charity no 1170742 ). We now run the management and maintenance of Manning's Pit and organise promotional and fundraising events. These fields have been loved by generations of Pilton, Bradiford and Barnstaple people from the writer H H Munro (Saki) back in the 19th Century to the local community in the present day.

A short video made in September 2019 by Wendy Robinson and Christine Lovelock explaining how The Friends of Manning's Pit were founded and the campaign to Save Manning's Pit was started, back in 2015.
Here is Ryan Vowles, reading his poem "Together" Ryan's poem ended with these words:
"So make a lot of effort, put your heart and soul into it And maybe, Together, we can Save Manning's Pit. "
The Friends of Manning's Pit have come together with the Pilton Green Man CIO, charity number 1170742, to buy Manning's Pit for the local community.
